Planning for what to serve on a donut birthday party food is quite easy. Just think of regular foods and treats in pink, red, green and light green.
Have loads of donuts with sprinkles and colored glaze on them, cupcakes with donut topper to keep to theme.
Pastel-colored popcorn mix, donut sugar cookies, and Rice Krispie treats are great ideas.
Just try to incorporate the theme colors where ever you can, the party decorations will carry the rest of the event for the most part.
Include drinks and slushies are great ideas and you can easily customize these in terms of color options and flavors!
